We have created maxSIMmakers as an opportunity for students with digital design and programming skills and interests to work with our group on various projects.
How does this work?
Step 2. You will be contacted by one of the leads for a meeting.
Step 3. You will need to registered as a volunteer with Ontario Tech or/and with Lakeridge Health Hospital and sign a contract form.
Step 4. You will be given access to a database of projects. Here, you will find different small- and large-scale projects that you will be able to work with.
Step 5. You will work with faculty, clinicians, and graduate students to help with design and/or programming.
Step 6. You will receive a formal appreciation letter (for your grad school, med school or any other professional school).
Step 7. In some cases, you will be considered an author on a publication or a presentation of the work.
Please note that work done as a maxSIMmaker is considered “work for hire”, and you will have to wave rights to any intellectual property (IP) imbedded within the project. However, with proper consultations with the lead of the maxSIMhealth, you are welcome to work with our group on your own projects. These will need to be agreed upon a-priori and the IP will be shared.
